Fellini belongs to nature.
For me, Fellini was like a watermelon. It is there. A watermelon cannot die.
When I first saw a Fellini movie, I came out of the movie theatre and decided to become a lawyer! I thought to myself, it's impossible to make something so beautiful!
My favorite favorites are people like Bunuel, Fellini and Charlie Chaplin.
It was I who made Fellini famous, not the other way around.
But, I'm a big Johnny Cash and a big Lou Reed fan and a Fellini fan.
I see wonderful films by Bertolucci, Visconti, and Fellini.
When I'm on stage, it's really intense.
My mind is going a million miles an hour, trying to remember my act, trying to say it all the right way. It's funny how different it looks and how it's happening. There are three Fellini circuses in my head, and outwardly it looks like I'm going to get a bagel.
Well, Fellini... there is always Fellini.
I was influenced by European movies, old Fellini, old Kurosawa - any sort of foreign film.
My star was kind of fading towards the end of the '60s and suddenly I got this call from Fellini, who just appeared to kind of love me!
